Above and Beyond | a collaboration with Koenigsegg

Published on Jul 10, 2017

Passion, attention to detail and a strong drive to push boundaries are all characteristics that Hasselblad and Koenigsegg have in common. We visited Koenigsegg factory in Southern Sweden to explore that synergy and collaborated with their team to create a visual representation of the journey and hard work that goes into producing a finished car from concept, design and development to production.

FrankenSkies, Weird Weather and Lacklustre Light: The New Normal

FrankenSkies, Weird Weather and Lacklustre Light: The New Normal

June 26, 2017

(GLARING Hypocrisy) Weather modification has drastically changed skies and weather systems across the globe, especially in the last ten or twenty years. Go anywhere in the world and it’s quickly apparent that the same heinous crimes are being committed, and no matter which terms are used — chemtrails, geoengineering, solar radiation management (SRM), stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI), and so on — the results are Frankenstein-inspired skies, weird weather and lacklustre light. The skies are streaked, smeared, filled with bizarre cloud formations, white, grey or, at best, a chalky blue. Sunshine is greatly diminished and when it shines it’s extremely rare for the earth to be bathed in warm, yellow light. The [unimpeded] golden hour, a gift for photographers, has all but disappeared. … Continue reading “FrankenSkies, Weird Weather and Lacklustre Light: The New Normal”

This Infinite Loop Timelapse Spins the Earth While the Stars Stay Still

If you point your camera at the sky and film, the stars will arc overhead. That’s because your camera is attached to a giant spinning orb called Earth. This interesting 24 hour time-lapse from YouTuber AlphaPhoenix stabilises the stars by spinning the footage in the opposite direction to Earth’s rotation.

AlphaPhoenix shot the time-lapse over 24 hours with a Sony A6000 and Samyang 12mm f/2.0. Each second of the video is an hour of real-time, as the 30fps time-lapse was created from one photo every 2 minutes.

By focusing on the North Star and rotating the image at the same speed as the Earth’s movement, AlphaPhoenix was able to freeze the stars in place as day turned to night, with beautiful results.

He also posted this behind-the-scenes video, showing how he managed to capture 24-hour footage from his window, using a shroud composed of two towels, a t-shirt, and a wizard hat (well, the leftovers of a wizard hat).

Google Abandons Its Nik Collection of Popular Photo Editing Software – Google is Evil!

My favorite photo software program buried by Google! Nothing else is like it, or can be:

Google’s “Don’t be EVIL” slogan is like Fox News’ “Fair & Balanced.” Saying they are not something may fool some, but EVIL IS: buying Nik’s patented U-Point technology, developed by almost 100 brilliant Germans, and then burying it, so NO ONE WILL EVER BE ABLE TO USE CONTROL POINTS AGAIN!

Google Abandons Its Nik Collection of Popular Photo Editing Software

MAY 30, 2017

Google has quietly announced that it will be abandoning the Nik Collection from here on out. The announcement was made through a simple banner message found on the Nik Collection homepage.

“The Nik Collection is free and compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 through 10.10; Windows Vista, 7, 8; and Adobe Photoshop through CC 2015,” Google writes. “We have no plans to update the Collection or add new features over time.”


Google will no longer develop Nik Collection

Published May 30, 2017

Google will stop providing updates for its Nik Collection suite of plug-in photo editing tools. The ‘announcement’ comes by way of a banner at the top of the Nik Collection site, stating that there are no plans to update or add features to the Collection.

Google acquired Nik in 2012, taking ownership of its desktop apps as well as its popular Snapseed mobile editing app. The company began offering the Collection free of charge last year.

(1 min video) AWESOME Northern Lights Corona Display – Looking Straight Up!!!

Corona is my favorite type of northern lights. Watch what happens when Sean points the camera straight up!!!

To me, viewing this live here in Alaska, and even through this excellent video, my heart lights up! Displays such as this say something magnificent about the glory of our Creator!

“…the invisible things of Him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity….” – Romans 1:20

Sean is based out of North Pole, Alaska, near Fairbanks.

Photo Buddy!

William Wallace by my side, while Kelly sought small game — 4 years ago.

As William got older, he didn’t run as much, while Kelly would never stop investigating in his later years.

The intimate landscape I was trying to capture with the Canon is of two, red Columbine flowers and this little falls. The gentle wind was moving the Columbine just enough to thwart our effort. The telephoto lens magnifies any movement.

Grateful, I cherish this moment, together!!! How can a price tag be put on such a faithful companion?

I miss my boy.

Quality Control: Why Camera Lens Copies Vary – Home of the L-series: Inside Canon’s Utsunomiya lens factory — Master Craftsmen can tell when to apply more or less pressure by feel alone. Some processes, like this one, are considered so critical that they must be performed by hand

The home of the L-series: Inside Canon’s Utsunomiya lens factory

With decades’ of experience, Master Craftsmen (or ‘Takumi’) can tell when to apply more or less pressure by feel alone. Some processes, like this one, are considered so critical that they must be performed by hand.

It typically takes between 25-30 years before a lens polishing technician attains the status of ‘Meister’, and their experience is essential to the production line.
